The booklet is part of a grade 10-12 social studies series produced for bilingual education. The series consists of six major thematic modules, with four to five booklets in each. The interdisciplinary modules are based on major ideas and designed to help students understand some major human problems and make sound, responsive decisions to improve their own and others' lives in the global society. Students are taught to: (1) comprehend and analyze the issue and synthesize their understanding; (2) effectively interpret the topic and clarify their values; and (3) participate in activities stressing development of critical reading, expository writing, and use and interpretation of illustrations, graphs, and charts. Each booklet is published with Spanish and English on facing pages. A "student edition" (not included here) and the "teacher's edition" are identical except for occasional marginal notes in the latter. This booklet begins with an introduction to ecology and continues with the theme of environmental conservation and pollution prevention. Three case studies deal with: a community's concern over air pollution and related health hazards; damage to environment and living organisms caused by uncontrolled use of certain pesticides; and pollution in the marine environment. Pollution's impact on human lifestyles and conflicting views and values are emphasized. A glossary and a resource list are included. (MSE)
